The Tuscan Republic (also referred to as the Tuscan Empire or Tuscany) is a country in Europe that borders the Prussian Empire, France, and Switzerland. It started within the region of Tuscany before completely invading Italy.
The Tuscan Republic is currently one of the greatest ally of the Pacific Empire and hopes to reclaim the Philippines once again in the future.
Fall of an EmpireEdit
The Philippine Empire, under the reign of Emperor Vito IV, was on the brink of conquering Asia. As the Empire gained more power and territory, tensions within the nation, especially between the supporters of Emperor Vito and the Philippine Anti-Monarchial Leage (PAML), started bringing instability, and eventually led to the Empire's collapse. Skirmishes between loyalist and PAML forces eventually led to a full-scale war when PAML forces raided the Imperial Barracks, killing soldiers from the AFP. Emperor Vito was quick to act upon the situation as he unleashed the full military might of the empire, with the aid of the Pacific Empire, the Philippines' greatest ally. The AFP and the Imperial Pacific Army were quick to close-in on the PAML's HQ in Mindanao. On the brink of taking the PAML's fortress, a distress call from Manila reported that Malacañang Palace was under attack. The AFP and the Imperial Pacific Army quickly pulled back to try and counter the threat and evacuate the Emperor and his cabinet to safety, but it was too late. The Emperor had been killed while many of the cabinet members were arrested and executed. With the death of Emperor Vito, the Philippines quickly fell into disarray. Seeing that the Philippine Empire would eventually fall, the Pacific Empire pulled out from the Philippines, deeming it a lost cause, and tried to save Vito's loyalists. Rodolfo Bonifacio, Prime Minister of the Empire and personal adviser of Emperor Vito was the only recorded survivor, thus, the only loyalist that was saved by the Pacific Empire. With Vito dead and most of his cabinet members gone missing, the Philippines quickly fell into anarchy, causing it to lose its territories and wealth. Eventually, the Philippine Empire ceased to exist.
Escape to TuscanyEdit
At the height of its power, a civil war erupted within the Philippine Empire. Rodolfo Bonifacio, the Prime Minister of Emperor Vito IV, fled to Italy with the help of the Pacific Empire. There, he started working for the Italian government as part of the diplomatic team that was sent to San Marino, the Vatican City and Monaco. Before forming the Tuscan Republic, Rodolfo Bonifacio went to Campione d'Italia, Sicily, and Rome to scout for the other refugees rumored to be in those areas.
Rise of a RepublicEdit
With a group of more than a hundred people and a diplomatic team from the Pacific Empire, Rodolfo petitioned the Italian government to let the city of Monteriggioni be the site of a new nation. The Italian government negotiated with Rodolfo and Frank Jaegar, who was then a part of the diplomatic team, for a week before giving Monteriggioni to the Filipino refugees in exchange for ℛℳ30,000,000 and a 8% "seceding tax" on the Tuscan Republic's yearly income.
